POINT PLEASANT — An “egg cellent” time is promised by organizers of the Point Pleasant Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church this Saturday.
The annual event starts at 2 p.m. at Tu-Endie-Wei State Park. There will be special prize baskets and prizes for those who find the specially marked eggs while every egg found will have a treat inside. Also, there will be free popcorn and the Easter Bunny will make an appearance to great egg hunters from across the area.
The entire event is free and church volunteers have been spending weeks stuffing 3,000 plastic eggs with candy for Saturday’s big hunt.
When arriving at the park, areas will be marked for specific age groups to hunt. Those areas are: children ages one to three years old (this is the only area where adults are permitted to assist children with hunting eggs); four-five years old; six to seven years old; eight to nine years old; 10-12 years old.
This is the second year the hunt will be held at Tu-Endie-Wei State Park with organizers happy with this new location.
Egg hunters need to arrive early and be at their stations, ready to go promptly at 2 p.m. The whole hunt is over in about 15 minutes but it’s a frantic and fun 15 minutes, according to those who attend.
The egg hunt is another outreach project of the Point Presbyterian Church which also hosts a Thanksgiving Community Dinner and Back-to-School Carnival each year. All events are free to the public.
